In Minnesota, we are incredibly lucky to have the MN State Arts Board grants funded by the Clean Water, Land, & Legacy amendment. I’m excited to announce I was awarded a MN State Arts Board Artist Initiative Grant.

Now comes the hard part: executing my proposed project! I have this year to shoot a short experimental film about leisure as resistance. Here we go…

What a lovely surprise to return home from holiday travels to find my copy of Paperbark in the mail! This issue features two of my Survival Skills collages.

Paperbark is a print and electronic-based literary magazine, published annually, with a focus on the environmental humanities, sustainable living, and the promotion of literary and fine arts. Published through the University of Massachusetts Amherst, the magazine is a platform for conversations around the currents of contemporary culture through the lens of sustainability, with themes ranging from climate change, policy, and science, to the meaning of place and the value of creative expression.

Teaching “Place” – Regional Event

Remember the past two regional events I organized? Teaching Social Practice Conference, October 2017 in Dartmouth MA, and 4D (Time) in Foundations Regional Event, February 2016 in Buckhannon WV.

I’m thinking about organizing a new one in June 2020 on how art/design instructors in higher education teach the concept of “place.” Again, it would be a free 1-afternoon conference-style event, and it would be located at Minneapolis College of Art and Design. Currently, I’m surveying people to measure feedback on dates, interest, content, etc.

Please spread the word! I’ve targeted people in Minnesota and the surrounding region, but anyone is welcome.

Also, there are 3 travel stipends available for part-time instructors and/or grad students… read more at the link: https://forms.gle/4PpAmHvPttZ9fVs6A
